Description of problem:
When I launched redhat-control-network (from System Tools --> Network Device
Control), I was not prompted to enter the root password (there were no keys on
the panel either). An error pop-up window appeared, saying:
/etc/resolv.conf to /etc/sysconfig/networking/profiler//default/resolv.conf
[Errno 13] Permission denied
Other pop-up windows said the same thing for /etc/hosts and /etc/ifcfg-eth0.
The window launches fine from a Terminal window while logged in as root.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Login as regular user
2.Launch redhat-control-network (System Tools --> Network Device Control)
3.Pop-up windows appear, describing copy failures.
Actual Results: After those failures, the Network Device Control window showed
no network interfaces and I was not able to use any of the configuration options.
Expected Results: Should have prompted for root password and allowed me to
configure network interfaces.
Happens to me on phoebe-3, redhat-config-network-1.1.97-1
This happens to me too. I reported a duplicate bug (84800) regarding this.
